I enjoy online learning and being able to learn at my own pace which is very helpful with a busy family and daycare.

Just what I needed! The area that we live in makes it hard to make it to those free trainings, but this is both affordable and convenient for me and my family. I can do it at my own pace.

I like how detailed the training courses were. they were defined very well and examples were given for further understanding. I also like how they highlighted some uncommon words and gave their definition to be able to thoroughly understand the discussion.

I feel I have the knowledge needed to be aware of signs of abuse. I know first aid, security procedures and safety concern for children in centers. I will use the nutrition information to help design a snack program that reflects the nutritional guidelines.

This past year I have struggled with the diversity conversations with my older kids. I really try to.explain that we are all different on the outside but the same on the inside, so that lemon activity will be fun for the kids. Also I believe my current center uses rewards as a bribe. And I hope to share with them how to use them to help the children. And not just bribe the children. I enjoyed these module the most so far.

I will use this information to help keep the children and the classroom enviroment safe. I now have the knowledge of what is safe and what is not for the children of the classroom.

I think it is a great informational tool to have these items discussed in such detail. I may know certain things about child care being a mother myself. However, you need to know specifics when it comes to a child care center.
It is always beneficial to hear how there are other ways of making the center that you work in a more safe and healthy environment. When you don't come in contact with a particular matter everyday you may not remember what steps need to be taken in this situation, such as if a child has head lice. Also there was a section regarding indoor safety of toys. It is mentioned what toys to avoid and that all crayons, markers, clay, should be nontoxic.

Honestly, I think ALL of the training worked for me as a whole. I really enjoyed learning and sharing what I learned with others.

I appreciated the mini knowledge assessments before taking the test at the end of each module. It definitely helped me to get a feel for my comprehension, things I needed to spend more time on, etc. It would be great to have some type of interactive component available, even just optional.

The part about security measured worked best for me. I didn't realize that there were so many different ways in which to keep the children and myself safe from unwanted hazards and people. I learned quite a bit when taking this course.

I really benefited from the behavior modification and communication sections. It was all very thoroughly informative.

Even though I don't consider myself very computer literate, these lessons are easy for me to complete and I feel successful when I get a response right away after taking a knowledge quiz or the final exam.
